. the incumbent is leading into october in the debates. they're both in battleground virginia, my home state today. we'll have more later. since it is thursday, it's time for presidential football. >> personal foul, number 93, red. >> the officials lost control of the philadelphia/baltimore game among others. >> yes, unless you are buried under a rock, you know the nfl has kicked the replacement refs to the curb. >> the packers playing at the goal line. as wilson scrambles to keep it alive. the game's final play is to the end zone, which is fumbled by tate with jennings simultaneous. who has it? who do they give it to? touchdown! one guy goes on touchdown, and the other said no. >> that play is why the regular refs are back on the field starting tonight in baltimore. what does that have to do with the presidential race you ask? for nfl teams like the packers, the new regular refs can begin a reset for their season. for mitt romney it's time for another campaign reset. can the debates mean a new season for mitt and bring him closer to the end zone? our pal ed rendell joins us. governor, can rom knn
. >>> well, now to politics and the fight for votes in swing states. mitt romney is heading to virginia where a recent poll conducted by quinnipiac university, "new york times" and cbs news shows the president with a slight edge over romney. he's up 49% to 45% over his republican rival in that battleground state. that's where we find cnn political editor paul steinhauser. paul, good morning. both campaigns working hard to get the boat out, of course, in virginia. a battleground on air, on the ground. how much are we talking about when it comes to this ad spending? >> we are talking about a lot of money, victor. this is a very important battleground state. remember, barack obama won the state four years ago. he was the first democrat victory since 1964 to win. as for ad spending, take a look at this. almost $12 million spent by president obama's election campaign and super pacs backing him. romney, just under 12 as well. independent super pacs backing him. the ad wars focused in the virginia beach, norfolk, tidewater area, virginia, noern virginia outside of d.c. those are the big markets in v
. so are you north carolina and nev nev and florida, and ohio, and virginia. the eight states that are being targeted in the ad campaign, an ad campaign so big the campaign describes it as a carpet bombing. and this list of states, the states you see marked on the map right here, that is pretty much where the election is going to be fought from here on out. this map, you will notice, doesn't include all of the places we have been thinking about and talking about as swing states. they're not placing ads in michigan, wisconsin, or pennsylvania. they have pulled their ads from michigan. romney is trailing in michigan by as much as seven points there. the pro romney pac money has dropped out of pennsylvania where romney is also behind in the polls. the romney campaign and the pacs together, of course, have more money than god and mick jagger combined, so they could still decide to spend money wherever, whenever. this almost have infinite resources in terms of ad dollars in this campaign season. unless something changes in their strategy, it looks like wisconsin and michigan and pe
today in virginia, he clearly backed off the rhetoric from yesterday. >> our own joe scarborough, former republican congressman himself wrote this in politico, mitt romney is in trouble not because of a boring convention or a bloodless speech or a grossly inappropriate press conference, but rather because the man refuses to stick his neck out and take a stand on the critical issues of our time. mitt romney is likely to lose and should given that he's neither a true conservative nor a courageous moderate. it's just an ambitious man. krystal ball, i have to say, i think joe captured it there. >> he nailed it. you can't think of a single moment, not just in this presidential campaign but in mitt romney's entire political career where he did not seek the most politically advantageous position, regardless of where he had been in the past, regardless of what he had said or written, regardless of the consequences or how irresponsible taking that position might be. he has always sought out what the poll tested best place for him to be is politically. and at some point -- and i think we are actua
the case that the best defense is a better economy. >> in battle ground virginia both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility.
in the country. massachusetts and virginia. polling just keeps coming out of massachusetts. democrat elizabeth warren has a small lead in 3 out of 4 recent polls. the fourth gave the edge to republican senator scott brown. last night the two squared off in their first senate debate. brown played up his regular guy roots arriving at the debate in his trademark green pick-up truck and attacked warren on character. >> professor warren claimed that she was a native american, a person of color. as you can see, she's not. that being said, she checked the box. >> i believed my mother and my father and my aunts and my uncles and i never asked anybody for any documentation. i don't know any kid who did. >> war didn't her best to saddle brown with the republican brand. brown did everything he could to persuade voters he wasn't really a republican -- or at least a moderate. >> this really may be a race for control of the senate and the supreme court may very well hang in the balance. >> listen, i'm the second most bipartisan in the united states senate, was recently named by washington onmagazine as the
. culturally when you gets to states like north carolina, virginia, ohio, a lot of swing states, that doesn't play quite as well in middle america, does it? >> especially in the south. north carolina, especially the gay marriage provision there, the state has spoken on that one. i'm also glad mike barnicle was able to join us in north carolina. he wasn't able to make it to tampa. >> greyhound didn't go down to tampa? >> no, no, i've been here since last tuesday. >> took a wrong turn. >> he just didn't want to be around that many republicans, gives him hives. like mika. he just starts scratching. >> the big question is are you better off than you were four year ago? the answer objectively the obama campaign tried to put out yes, we are. at the same time you don't want to be gloating. >> they don't want to say what the mayor from maryland said, are you better off? no but that's not the question. that's always the question. you can look at a lot of data and say, yes, we are better off today than we were four years ago. but with so many people hurting in america right now -- >> it's a tough sel
at home mitt romney made sulgs jobs on foreign policy. campaigning in battleground virginia, romney offered this message. >> american leadership, the middle east needs american leadership and i intend to be a president that provides the leadership that america respects. >> and romney was relatively measured responding to this barb of the president concerning an interviewing on telemundo. >> i have observed there's a tendency to shoot without aim. >> asked about it, romney chose no, sir to swing back. >> the exact same conclusion the white house reached. the statement was inappropriate. that's why they backed away from it as well. >> but the romney campaign has escalated their attacks on the president this morning telling "the washington post" that the deadly protest sweeping the middle east would not have happened if romney were president. foreign policy adviser rich williamson is quoted, there's a pretty compelling story that if you had a president romney you'd be in a different situation. for the first time since jimmy carter, we've had an american ambassador assassinated. he also
the power ten are ohio, florida, north carolina, virginia, new hampshire, colorado, nevada, iowa, wisconsin, and michigan. memorize those states. they make up a whopping 126 electoral votes. given this, it's perhaps totally not that surprising at all that president obama has been campaigning in new hampshire, iowa and florida since friday. in the same period, governor romney has hit iowa, new hampshire, virginia and travels to ohio today. as a backgrounder, in 2008, president obama won all of these states in contention. this year, polling in key tossup states is making the romney campaign very, very nervous, especially in ohio. leading up to the conventions, president obama held a six-point lead in the state. but the romney campaign tells politico their internal polling since then has shown as much as a nine-point gap in the buckeye state. this comes as voters in many key swing states are already heading to the polls or will be shortly. early voelgts in north carolina began by mail-in ballot last thursday. late next week early voting begins in wisconsin, michigan, new hampshire and virginia
in nine battleground states deciding the election. ohio, florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, north carolina, nevada, new hampshire. bad news for mitt romney, he doesn't lead in a single one. at best within the poll's margin of error. at worst, trails by eight points. this morning, how the nine states stack up. we said it again and again. the president's job approval rating may be the best indicator of where the bout may be. where it is more than 50, the president favored to win. iowa, florida, new hampshire, ohio, virginia, his approval rating below that, 47 or 48 in four. colorado, nevada, north carolina, wisconsin. here is a second way to breakdown the numbers. romney struggled with favorability number all year. that number underwater, more voters have unfavorable than favorable view in six states. romney is in positive territory in just three. florida, north carolina, virginia. finally, a third bucket of looking at these numbers in the extent of romney's problems. for months, romney led on who could better handle the economy. in four more, he trails the president. colorad
states, came out last night, ohio, florida, virginia, if you had to pick three states where the election's going to be decided it's these three. obama up seven in ohio, five in florida, three in virginia. >> well, it's not good. i men when you see the polls. and they mirror the polling we had done with nbc/"wall street journal"/marist a week ago, showed the same numbers. we'll have new polls tonight at 6:30 on some other key states in iowa, wisconsin, and colorado. and those are going to be states that we're going to be interested to see just where is this race moving, or is it moving at all? and the fact is, i mean, they really are looking at these numbers. they know what's happening here. and they -- that's why you're seeing a bus tour that they're trying to roll out and some of the other things. this -- these three states, with florida, virginia, and ohio, more than half of all money spend in campaign advertising has come from just those three states. >> remarkable. >> more than $300 million spent between the outside groups and the campaigns, you know, so of the 620 million or so. so
to have dueling rallies in the same swing state. today's rallies each in virginia. the president is running a little bit late. president obama's campaign responding to romney's new straight to camera ad with one of its own a two-minute living room pitch airing in seven states. >> during the last weeks of the campaign, there will be debates, speeches, and more ads. but if i could sit down with you, in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say -- when i took office we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and mired in iraq. today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. >> yesterday in ohio, governor romney also seemed to be in a duel with himself. morning rally he condemned the affordable care act as government invasion. >> he also thinks that the government can do a better job than you in the way you live your life and obama care is point number one. it's the example number one he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, believes the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. >> the very same day, spec
, neck and neck in virginia. they are real pros trying to keep alive politically and want some real separation as they say in the nfl from this guy, romney. what's going on? >> well, you know, romney is taking all these hits in the last four weeks from his miserable trip to london and clint eastwood and not mentioning the troops in afghanistan, the disaster with the libyan statement and the video i made public earlier this week and the thing is, if he had a real good overarching strategic plan and message that the conservative republican elites here and members of the senate had any -- could see, could discern, i think people would be more willing to stand by him. but he doesn't have a strong rudder. every day it's like he changes strategy. he's going to be more moderate or red meat to the conservative, be an outsider, insider. obama says black, i'll say white today so the campaign is bouncing around like a ping-pong ball being buffeted by winds. without a strong rudder, you move back and forth. that's what peggy noonan and everybody else is responding to. we talk about there being
in virginia, please. nate? >> caller: booyah from arlington, virginia, jimmy. >> booyah back at you. >> caller: a big thank you for your wisdom. a big fan of getting back to even and especially your wisdom on deep in the money call. >> that is the strategy. it's back 40 dprenifference fro where we said. >> caller: in diversifying, i looked at so-called growth stocks, a pair of beauty suppliers, ultra and sally beauty. does the recent good tiedings in alta, does that spell -- >> i'm not as close to sal eve beauty. i thought the ulta was terrific. you mentioned using deep in the money calls. ulta is a deep in the money call play. those that think i just recommended trading apple by mentioning the deep in the money, i'm just saying i need you to invest in apple however you ulta is best made by paying off your money calls. looking for glamorous profits? who isn't? here are the stocks i say you should be looking at. kors, gap, nordstrom's, urban outfitter and lulu. >> could others be circling around this property? don't miss cramer's exclusive with its chairman just ahead. >>> tomorrow on "squawk b
in virginia. we registered and made contact with over 300,000 people just in the last week. 150,000 just last weekend alone. >> hi, is your voter registration up to date. >> reporter: a few days later we caught up with obama supporters in herndon, west virginia, registering voters at a nearby visit. >> what i try to do is go where the folks are, barber shops, beauty parlors, libraries, back to school night. where did you live before? >> alexandria. >> you would need to reregister to vote. >> reporter: campaigns say it's also important that voters know what to bring to the poll ts. virginia like most states requires voters to present identification to vote. while virginia doesn't mandate a photo i.d., laws in about a dozen states do. several more face court challenges. the laws supporters say is to prevent voter fraud. >> whoever wins the next upcoming presidential race, i want everyone to say, yep, they won and there's no doubt about that person's mandate because of questions over the election process. >> reporter: a recent poll in three swing states found a majority vote for voter i.d. laws.
stumps today in norfolk, virginia. the last stop on his troed charlotte tour. last night the president put politics aside to visit a louisiana town hit by hurricane isaac and talk with local officials about the recovery effort, but he did manage to make a subtle contrast between the recovery efforts taking place today and those under his predecessor during hurricane katrina. >> i want to particularly thank fema and the state and local authorities, because sometimes in the past we haven't seen the kind of coordination that is necessary in response to these kinds of disasters. this time we've seen it. we weren't behind the eight ball. >> mitt romney is keeping a lower profile this week. he's using down time to prep for october presidential debates, but something romney said over the weekend did earn a presidential retort monday, and as the two sparred over their economic plans he got into a battle of sports metaphor. you know at "the daily rundown" we love a good sports metaphor. >> 23 million people are out of work, stopped looking for work or are underemployed. let me tell you if you h
battleground states. the president has a five-point lead over romney in virginia and florida. and in ohio, his lead is up to seven points. >> and of course, john heilmann, these are all states that george w. bush won in 2004. virginia's a little wider than we could have expected. florida, a five-point lead in such a conservative state. this late in the game with few undecided voters is really telling. but the ohio number, again, continues to be -- >> devastating. >> -- the dagger in the romney campaign's heart if they can't -- if they can't pull that out and make that a closer race. seven points in ohio is devastating. the right track/wrong tracks in these states, all much better than they are in the rest of america. in ohio, the right track, 45% of ohio voters think that the country's headed in the right direction. >> look at those three numbers up there. 49, 49, 50, those are all, you know, the obvious point to make. you know, the president -- at 50 in ohio, those numbers are all approaching, you know, the numbers that you need to win those states. >> yep. >> and they're places the president
only at or be 6%. the president was blunt today at a campaign in virginia. he is keeping americans safe at home and abroad. >> we have to make sure that not only our military, but also our diplomats overseas are protected. >> pedagogue officials claimed u.s. marines were in another part of lidia. then admitted that was not true. state department officials said there were no libyan guards inside the perimeter of the u.s. consulate and had to walk that back. >> you hate to think the president would purposely mislead the american people, but it sure likes it -- it sure looks like it to me. >> any notion that they have misled the american people -- they maintained the only reason it has changed is because new facts have emerged because this is an ongoing investigation. nonetheless, it is clear republicans are using this change an account to continue to challenge the president's credibility. lou: ed, is there any indication that the white house intent and some timeframe i must certainly will not be soon, because we are approaching the second week since the murders of our ambassador and three
in virginia, mitt romney the first mormon to win a naum nax assured the crowd he'd keep god as part of his message. >> i will not take god out of the name of the platform. i will not take god off our coins, and i will not take god out of my heart. >> romney's religion sparked a dpood deal of interest among americans. according to google searches about romney's faith are trending higher than ever, surpassing any topics democrats used to attack him, that includes bain, tax returns and doggone roof. i think this interest is -- says a number of things. first of all, i think it sort of skew we aers the idea problem g propagated that religious doesn't matter anymore. i think clearly people still care greatly and deeply about the faith of their political candidates. so they're searching this, and i think that curiosity is actually a good thing. i think the reason you're not seeing this play out on sort of a national conversation the way some expected it to is twofold. one, it doesn't cement an existing narrative that's existed about romney the way that religion has been used in the past to do tha
's in the middle of a swing state tour leading up to the convention. he's barnstorms through iowa, virginia, colorado. over the last week, he travels to ohio today and returns to virginia tomorrow before coming to north carolina. also a new ad out this morning called heavy load airing in six battleground states. the obama campaign attacks romney's tax plan and makes the middle class appeal. we'll hear from democrats all week. >> the middle class is carrying a heavy load in america, but mitt romney doesn't see it. romney hits the middle class harder and hits millionaires with a bigger break. is that the way forward for america? >> even as the president tries to cast this campaign as a choice between two competing igs visions for america, where it comes to the question whether americans are better off than they were four years ago, the obama campaign remains a little on the defensive, or at least they did sunday. take a listen. >> -- we were this close to a great depression because the leadership of this president, we stayed that off, we're in the beginning of recovery. >> are we where we nee
candidate mark meadows says, "i'm not romney." lynchberg, virginia, "video fallout proves taxing for romney." detroit, michigan, "romney's 47% remark: will it sink his campaign?" andrew kaszynski at buzz feed has been doing thiz rouese rounf swing state newspaper's front-page headlines. so it's a great way to get a snapshot of how things covered in the national press are actually translating on the ground, where the voters who will decide this election will actually be reading about it in their local paper. and the romney campaign's media problem becoming a national problem, a coast to coast nationwide problem is evident now not just in newspaper lines like you just saw across the country, but also in the polling. every day now, we're getting new waves of polling data from the nine or so states that make up the swing state map for the election. these are the latest numbers as of today. in new hampshire, mr. romney currently holding a three-point lead. that is a rasmussen poll. in virginia, it's president obama up by seven. in florida, it's president obama up by five. in colorado, it's presi
the stage in battleground virginia this afternoon, armed with an hour-long video with which all of america is now very familiar. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims. who think that they're not interested in taking responsibility for their own lives. i don't see a lot of victims in this crowd today. i see hard-working virginians. >> or, as mr. romney likes to call them, feckless freeloaders. now, of course, as romney faces an intense backlash for insulting half the nation, the romney camp also finds itself with a war chest less impressive than originally thought, and now a widening gap in key swing state polls in both colorado and wisconsin. a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll puts the president up five points among likely voters, 40% to 45%. in iowa the president's edge over romney is eight points, 50% to 42%. that number enough to take iowa out of the swing state category, now defined as leaning toward the president on msnbc's battleground map putting romney at an even deeper electoral deficit. the new polls taken after
for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. i'm mitt romney, and
but basically within the margin of error. and in virginia, a new poll from suffolk university/nbc 12 puts obama slightly ahead of romney, also within the margin of error. so, how can romney turn it around? it may not be easy. some people within this romney campaign have concluded he's not actually a very good politician. here's what one romney official explained to politico. he said -- now romney's former rival newt gingrich doesn't go quite that far, but he says that romney needs to reform his thinking. >> i think they're only now beginning to come to grips with the general election. they had a very -- >> scary -- >> they had a very successful primary strategy. in a primary you can raise enough money to build a motor boat and drive to where you want to get to in the primary. in the general election you're like a sail boat. the system is so much bigger than you. >> it is hard to go from a motor boat to a sail boat, known who is familiar with yachting knows that. ben smith, i want to go right to you and talk about sort of the problem facing this campaign. first, when is the last time that govern
